Logan Cummings is a doctoral student in the Clinical Science and Cognitive Neuroscience programs at Florida International University.
Broadly, Logan is interested studying the relationship between sleep disturbances and the development of suicidal and nonsuicidal self-injury (deliberate self-harm without the intention to die) during adolescence, and how this is related to the neurodevelopment of reward circuitry during this same developmental period. He hopes to use translational neuroscience to better inform clinicians’ ability to predict and treat these life-threatening behaviors.
